I guess this is the "performance Pack" add-on to the Veloster N. With typical Hyundai aggressive sales pricing seems ok.

There's been a couple of huge recalls on the engine used in the Veloster, metal debris left in the engine when manufactured. So, that would indicate to me the new engines are probably pretty good. Nothing like getting your fingers burned to teach you to avoid the stove. The engine I've read is a weak sauce version of the engine used in the Evo X.

a lightly modified one did quite well in its class at WTAC...



same car when they just got it, also with the "but its a Hyundai" mind set like the rest of us



then there are these guys who won their first season with the car...


I mean hate all you want, but this thing performs... I can't help but wonder if this people generally saw japanese imports in the 70's and 80's? that being said, I can't get over the "but its a Hyundai" myself, haha

that's probably more than 60 to 70k AUD for a stripped down Hyundai going side ways around corner one at eastern creek doing 100 mph, no thanks, I'd rather save a few more bucks and get a M2

thats not very evo owner of you... by that logic no one should modify cars, just buy more expensive higher performing cars from the factory and keep them stock... I mean your evo is modified, what kinda car could have gotten if you didn't dump all that money into the evo?

you may not like the car or Hyundai but you gotta appreciate this ****ing attention to detail. i love it, everything from cooling, how suspension responds, etc.
I don't like that they fixed pad knockback electronically as part of their torque vectoring by brake instead of giving it a stronger hub. what happens when you upgrade to different calipers?

he said the lsd is hydro-electric, does that mean viscous diff? or some sort of electro magnetic fluid? if its a viscous diff then thats another let down... the viscous fluid breaks down relatively quick and there isn't a way to change the fluid...

it's not viscous - from what i understand it's pretty much a copy of the gti's, which is a pretty fancy unit.

probably uses hydraulic pressure, i haven't looked too much into it but there was a diagram somewhere.

I still can't get behind Hyundai or Kia. In the last year I've ridden in ones that were 2-3yrs old, bought new at the dealer, not used rental cars. They were pieces of ****. Rattles and cheapness abounded. If I'm buying a new car, it shouldn't feel like I'm in my Evo when it's 2yrs old..

I don't know how anti-lag this could be but the Engineering Explained guy says Biermann said in N-mode it actually does a real anti-lag effect in addition to the noise in other modes. I'd love for someone to test this in N-mode compared to the other modes to see if it actually does work.

It's a hydraulic-actuated clutch pack differential. I can't find the diagram of it anymore for some reason. Here are some torques splits.

I wonder how much horsepower a tune can scrounge up then? If I assume the engines are mostly the same, conservative stock boost. (@ 6:25 of the video) 14.5 psi normal boost, 16 psi overboost. I'll attach the video again for convenience that was posted above.
